Liz in her play...

Please bear with me as I post more pictures of my family so other family members can see them.

Liz played Lucinda, Cinderella's stepsister, in the play Into the Woods this weekend. If only my mother, the drama queen, could have been there to see her youngest granddaughter, who is her spitting image, playing this role. Somehow, I'm sure she did see it.....

Liz is in the light pink.


It was a very, very busy and fun weekend.

I'm guessing they only did Act one? Act two is awfully dark for a kids' production. But I LOVE Act one. Such catchy music!

They did do Act two, SE, which surprised me and required some discussion. I did not like what seemed to be the message although I think my daughter, in her innocence, did not really catch it. For example, when I talked to her about the lines, "You decide what's right. You decide what's good," in the context of moral relativism she said, "Well, I just thought it meant that you should think about what's right and then decide to do it." :-) As in---use your conscience.
I at first was very bothered by the casual treatment of infidelity but then I thought well at least the princes ARE portrayed as buffoons (at least in this show they were...) And the baker does end up kind of the hero for his willingness to self-sacrifice.
The idea that "life is really awful, that people will die or leave you but we'll all be all right if we stick together" bothered me. As Christians we know wherein lies our hope. I'm hoping there will be class discussions....
It would not have been among my first choices for a high school production.

Rosemary, I'm still hoping to be up your way part of the first week of June. We must pray that we get to meet. I'll keep in touch as time gets a little closer and try to make a firm time with you. Pray! :)
